Prof. Rob Schurko's NMR group has recently taken delivery of an ultra-fast magic-angle spinning NMR probe, which will be used for acquiring high-resolution 1H NMR spectra of a variety of different materials, including solid pharmaceuticals. The probe was purchased for ca. $110,000 using funds obtained from an NSERC RTI (Research Tools and Instruments) Grant.
Congratulations to Aaron Rossini, who was awarded the Governor General's Gold Medal for top standing as a graduating Ph.D. student at the University of Windsor. Aaron worked in Prof. Rob Schurko's solid-state NMR research group; he has 11 peer-reviewed publications and 31 academic presentations at local, national and international conferences. He was awarded a Marie-Curie Fellowship, and is currently working at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Lyon, France, in the research group of Prof. Lyndon Emsley. His wife, Erin, who has a degree in oenology, is currently working at a vinyard in Provence; they are both enjoying their time in France.
